'86 420 SEL and it's throttle response could be a bad Overload Relay.
I have the new Overload Relay and have a dumb question. Should I
disconnect the battery before replacing? Also, is this relay located in
the engine compartemtn in the fuse box? I also got a new fuel pump
relay as well, is this located in the same place in this car as well?
So where is it located on the '86? I live in the city and have it
garaged, so when I go to change it, I need to have an idea of where to
look as I don't have the best working conditions here...
Now I'm becoming interested in this overload relay as well. My '89 300e appears
to be running well overall _except_ it idles rough down around 500 rpm. I
checked all the obvious as well as the overload relay 'fuse'. If I understand
correctly, the relay itself may be bad causing the car to actually run in a
'dumb' mode without the computer and that may cause a rough idle? I've
probably got something wrong since I can't complain about performance, milage,
etc otherwise. Could the rough idle be connected to the relay?
